This was a story of two people with very opposite backgrounds. Their adult lives were very different than their upbringing, but, they managed to find common ground while caring for Owen's nieces and nephew.
Gracie was able to tap into the fun loving, relaxed part of Owen that allowed him to not only open up to the kids, but to Gracie as well.
Owen and Gracie's friends helped her to recognize that she was more than a flighty female.
This was a pretty light hearted romance that was sweet, sexy, and funny. Definitely low level angst. The narration was pretty good. Normally this narrator immediately makes me forget the book is being narrated and pulls me into the story. For some reason, this time I spent some time listening more to her voice than the story. I'm not sure why, but I found it to be a bit more distracting than normal. It was probably just me. I was able to get right
back into the flow after a bit.
I voluntarily listened to and reviewed this Audio Book.
Tracey Alvarez has once again written a wonderful book filled with real characters with real life problems, fears, and hopes. Owen Bennett, or Dr. O, is a local physician who has temporarily taken over the care of his 2 nieces and nephew while his mother recuperates. Gracie Cooper is kind of an itinerant world traveler, who comes home for a wedding and, through a series of events, is hired by Owen to help with the kids. They are drawn to one another, but neither wants a relationship or commitment, but that doesn't stop the attraction or sexual tension between them. This story revolves around their struggles to fight the attraction, the issues with a precocious child, a cute little boy, and the trials of a coming of age teenager, and with Gracie trying to find what she truly wants i her life. Ms. Alvarez has written a wonderful story that involves characters from previous books as well as some interesting new people. Ms. O'Toole does another amazing narrating job of adding depth and substance to the characters and their emotions. She capably captures the nuances in them and adds so much to an already good story. I really enjoyed these characters finding each other and their happy ever after. Ms. Alvarez has done it again with a winner and Ms. O'Toole has gotten even better too. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers. The fact that it is set in New Zealand just makes it that much better!
